Now a national historic landmark, this 1827 Greek Revival house was built for Miami Chief Jean Baptiste de Richardville. He built a trading empire in the Old Northwest Territory that reportedly made him the richest man in the state when he died in 1841.The house's architecture is as stunning as its Miami and French heritage.
